Happenings Sunday 16 Dec 2018 ( Bush league mods and black projects )

The Black Project ....

Phenix 60 EDF'ed (1 min 48 sec)

This was a learning experience for sure .
In so many ways it was done wrong !

The little voice in my head said move the EDF further to CG , but the dumb dumb got in the last word . ( )
Now it takes a 1700mAh battery to get CG

I think the project was a bad idea from the start , it was never going to be anything but a brick .
But from the perspective of a learning experience ( getting schooled ) .
So the question now is = Will it fly ?
CG is about right , there is some thrust , but if only it was 100 grams lighter !

Bush League Modz

I have all these little quads and mini / micro DLG's now and I am getting lazy .
Getting out the hobby charger for every little battery ?
Oh man ! Just can't be bothered .

So in the wayback machine there was this little charger for 16340 - 10440 batteries that is USB .
And I remember it was a low current charger and I thought .. !!!!
Why not make a multi plug insert for the charger ( be 4.2v charger ) , so I can charge my little batteries ( 1s ) .

A) Components = Plastic lolly pop stick , bullet connectors and some leads / plugs for batteries .
B) Solder in place the leads to the bullet connectors ..
C) Glue the bullet connectors to your lolly pop stick ( cut to length )
D) tape it up and maybe colour code it .. ( Red for + , black for - )

And that's it ! A multi battery charger for small batteries that is bush league easy to do and use ..

I ordered some smaller 2s batteries , I was playing with a battery and looks like I can make CG with a smaller / lighter battery .
Just have to have it at the very tip of the nose ..
